We’re so excited to be shortlisted for the ‘Best Crisis Communications or Response Campaign’ at this year’s Global Agency Awards – delivering science lessons during the COVID-19 pandemic. Winners will be announced on 10 September at 8 pm!
What we’re shortlisted for…
During lockdown, we worked with Empiribox Ltd. to launch their brand-new platform – Empiribox @ Home. Since the campaign went live on 25 May 2020, Empiribox @ Home has delivered virtual home-school science lessons aligned with the KS1 and KS2 curriculum and sent to over 1800 teachers across the UK.
“We’re so proud to be shortlisted for this campaign that not only helps teachers and students but parents too – keeping everyone connected and engaged during these unique and uncertain times. Whenever we decide to work with an edu business, we want to know how they can make a positive impact on teaching and learning… and this is a prime pedagogical example of the impact we aim to make.” – Bryan Plumb, CEO and Founder, Bee Digital.
About Empiribox @ Home
Empiribox @ Home is a library of digital science resources which provides schools with access to interactive video lessons, hands-on practical activities, editable worksheets to evidence pupil learning, and interactive quizzes for summative assessment. The platform has been designed to support schools and families, prevent education gaps during lockdown… and to make classroom and blended learning as fun as possible!
“We couldn’t be happier to be part of the shortlist. Especially to be recognised for supporting schools during a crucial time with fun and interactive remote learning solutions – essential for any learning environment. Whilst certain subjects lend themselves for delivery at home, a big concern for teachers was how would they be able to adapt practical science lessons to ensure pupils remain engaged and continue to extend their learning. Working alongside Bee Digital, we were able to reactively help teacher needs and provide a solution that could be used in conjunction with other Empiribox services as a consolidation resource, a flipped learning opportunity or as a stand-alone science home service.” – Richard McGrath, Chairman and CEO, Empiribox Ltd.
